That’s how big the fire was. I just heard Miss. Sue screaming, ‘help, help’ I just thought oh my goodness,” Crosby said. Ragland’s granddaughter, Darreya Jones, is thankful that Crosby acted quickly and explained that in spite of the damage to her home, Miss. Ragland is uninjured and in good spirits. The Deputy Fire Marshall with Huntsville Fire and Rescue says the call came in at 8:44 a.m. and the first of 7 fire trucks got there five minutes later.
